I worked at SanDisk full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- You make your own hours
- Traveled to California HQ for in depth training
- No Micromangement - supervisors are based in California
- Excellent pay for an Internship program + embursed for travel expenses (gas, car insurance)
- Great Experience and helped me get an amazing job after graduation

Cons

- Worked alone and out of the house: must be a self starter/motivated or you won't be succussful
- Weren't always given much direction
- No Feedback on performance until my exit interview
- One of MANY (about 50 nationwide) interns - makes it difficult to continue with the company after graduation.

Advice to Management

give a little more direction because the interns work remotely and give feedback throughout the internship, not just in the exit interview. This is a great opportunity for college students and I hope the program contunues

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Cons

    -Not enough direction in assigning tasks
    -Very little training given to interns
    -Little to no feedback on job performance makes it difficult to improve and grow professionally

    Continue the Field Marketing Intern program, but provide more direction and expectations to interns. More training would also make the program more effective
